One of the most bizarre moments of the match between FC Barcelona and Villanovense at the Camp Nou was when, 10 minutes before the end, FC Barcelona defender Jérémy Mathieu was injured and, instead of subbing him, Luis Enrique decided to play with 10 footballers. A decision that generated some controversy.

At the end of the game, Luis Enrique said that he had no intention to offend Villanovense. Furthermore, he didn't say anything about Mathieu's physical conditions.

This Thursday, the French defender underwent medical tests, which showed he has an elongation on his right quadriceps. Although the accuracy of the diagnosis, the club have not said anything about his comeback, so he might miss next match against Valencia, on Saturday at 8.30 pm CET.
